Your story is important. Each voice helps to understand what’s happening - the ordinary and the extraordinary - right now, as we all are living it.

WOSU’s Letters from Home is recording the day-to-day lives of all of us through the COVID-19 pandemic.  We ask for reflective stories and thoughts. While social media is a quick splash in a puddle, we are looking for a deep dive in your feelings and life.

WOSU Public Media will curate these stories and post them on our various formats including on the radio, TV and online. We’ll let you know how we use your stories so you can tune in.

As part of WOSU's Letters from Home series, Debra Lape of Avon in Lorain County shared her story about an infamous relative from her family's history.

Her great-great-grandmother Lizzie Lape lived in Ohio as well, as the 1918 Spanish flu epidemic spread across the country.

Bob Grove

When the order came to shelter in place, in the hopes of flattening the infection rate of COVID-19, I immediately thought of Bob Grove.

He’s a friend, has been sheltering in place for over a year. In March 2019, Grove was diagnosed with leukemia, and from that moment on, he has spent most of his time either at the hospital or at home.
